Daily Thoughts 12/28/2011

I went to Board of Estimate and Contract Special Meeting on Decmber 28, 2011 at 10:00 a.m.  The meeting started at 10:05 a.m.  There was no final decision on the 2012 Budget Estimate for the City of Mount Vernon.  There were disagreements between the interested parties.  I was there to listen and observe the meeting.  At around 10:20 a.m. the meeting went into executive session ending the period of public discussion.

This morning, I updated the Twitter and Facebook accounts.  The library opened the Computer Lab for Academic Use between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.  An adolescent pregnancy prevention group stopped in to use the lab for research.  Today has been fairly quiet.

We also had the Graphic Novels Club from 4:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.  We discussed a number of titles including V for Vendetta by Alan Moore.  I also learned that the manga magazine Shonen Jump was moving to online only.  We have several copies which will be giveaways at the Anime Club.  We are planning to discuss graphic novel movie tie ins which should be interesting for the next Graphic Novels club.

The book, World On The Edge How To Prevent Environmental and Economic Collapse by Lester R. Brown came in for me to read.  It should be quite interesting.  People need to receive suggestions for solutions even if they do not agree with them always.

I checked the displays this evening and updated the current events display with some books on what is in the news.  I can hear the drums for the Kwanzaa event downstairs.
